Brady Sullivan

Licensed Professional Counselor

Counseling is about vulnerability. Throughout our daily lives we are constantly thrust into situations where we must put on our best face and display an image of perfection to others. Too often is the phrase "I'm fine" uttered when someone asks how we are doing. In session, I work to create a space where you can finally discuss the concerns, fears, and pain you have experienced—without judgment. My goal as your therapist is to use our connection to help you see yourself as you truly are. Through this process of self-reflection we can acknowledge all of the pain and suffering you have been through, and set you back on the path of becoming the person you have always wanted to be.
